The NCM website is now discounting the book to $29.99. Corvette Buildsheet Book BOKCORVBUILDSHEET The Corvette Buildsheet Book is for the third generation Corvette (C3) owner, collector, hobbyist or prospective buyer who wishes to understand Corvette assembly production broadcast codes, how those codes were used to tag parts and how the buildsheet documented original buyer options. Six chapters cover a range of topics exclusive to those build records of this period. Numerous color illustrations compliment a detailed analysis of build records and guide the reader to understand how to interpret buildsheet data whether its an RPO, broadcast code or retrieving job numbers from schedule data. The study guide is coil bound, in an 8.5" x 11 format with 53 pages and 52 detailed tables and color illustrations. Was $42.00, now $29.99 (Savings: $12.01)

Hib Halverson, technical writer for Corvette magazines, wrote a review of the Corvette Buildsheet Book and posted it at the Corvette Action Center.  He included both barbs and humor in the review and its worth a read.

Hib Halverson said:  In reading the book I found a few quirks, such as Mr. Russo's use of the vernacular term "motor" when discussing engines.

Wull....technically, he's correct...if ya wanna nit-pick. "Motor" is used to describe electrical motors, while the term "Engine" is used to describe the internal combustion engine(or rocket fueled power supplies). Geek

"Deep Geek"???? LOL
It's a nice review, anyway! Thumbs Up
